Lucky for us, a photographer with the Michigan Daily, U-M's student newspaper, spent part of her summer at home in Petoskey.  Erin Kirkland's proximity to Pellston gave her an excuse to visit the field station she had heard about from fellow students.  The results of her exploration appeared September 12 in "The Statement," the Daily's weekly news magazine. They are also on the magazine's website.    

Kirkland is Managing Photo Editor at the Daily. Over the course of several weeks, she made repeated visits to UMBS.  Sometimes she walked around to just experience "camp life." Other times she followed a class into the field.  Always, she had her camera in hand.
